Crockpot Soup Recipes

This post is an update on a 2015 post…we’ve added 23 brand new slow cooker soup recipe ideas and tips for prepping these meals!

Soups are often a nutritional powerhouse, packed with veggies and protein. Using your own homemade bone broth will up the nutrition factor even more!

Tips for getting the most flavor out of your slow cooker soup recipes:

Sometimes cooking low and slow can strip some of the flavor from a soup. Here are some tips to get the BEST flavor & texture from your crockpot soup recipe!

  • use the right herbs– a general rule is to add hardy herbs like rosemary and thyme at the start of cooking. Reserve soft herbs like cilantro and parsley to add just before serving
  • add acid at the end– most soups can benefit from a boost of acid (lemon juice, lime juice, balsamic vinegar etc) at the end of cooking. It really brings out extra flavor!
  • taste for salt– always taste test before serving and stir in more salt if needed
  • use the right cut of chicken– chicken breast cannot handle over 5 hours (on low!) in the slow cooker. If you need to cook for longer than that, consider boneless skinless chicken thighs. Bonus: brown the thighs first and they will hold together even better!
